If the media downloader is only a recommendation, then why do I have to download it to get to Freecorder?
No download is conditioned by the installation of another program. I have downloaded and installed Freecorder using the download page at Software Informer. The application was installed normally without errors. However, make sure to slowly click Next, then deselect toolbar offers from the application.
